Big Pants On The Line


There's a big funeral at the chapel next to the village hall today.
It's so big that there is a PA system set  up from the chapel  to the hall which will act as an overspill.
It's a farmer from the next village of Llanasa who has passed away.
Old farmers always seem to have big funerals!
Seeing that there was agood turn out, I placed a few extra Flower Show Schedules  in the hall's foyer,
and confessed my sins to Claire ( wife of the affable despot Jason) who lives next door.
" I better get my big pants off the washing line" she said, " we can't have them flapping in the wind when there's a big do on"

  5. I think old farmers have large funerals because they are such a nice group of people and they touch so many lives.
    It's only polite to clear the knickers off the line ...

  8. Every Monday when we do our shopping, we always pass a washing line with several huge ladies pants drying. We never drive past by without a few words.

  15. A big funeral always presents lucrative sales opportunities. I'm surprised you didn't take along a few eggs and sign some copies of your autobiography "The Dogman of Denbighshire" for the mourners. Folk are more likely to part with their cash when their guard is down.

  16. The churches around here overflow at the farming community funerals. My mother managed a church full with standing room only. It is customary around here to swap vegetables (by the sack) at such occasions and at my Father's funeral over 40 years ago I can still remember estate cars with the back door open and farmers handing out sacks of onions and potatoes and carrots.

  17. Not only would I have left my skivvies up, I'd have added even more. A job lot of hugely tartan boxers with shiny ribbons perhaps.
    Someone would sure appreciate having a wee chuckle after their funerary duties were completed, right?

  21. Crikey ... Way too funny! My mum gives me a pair of her big pants when she goes out. They are such a comfort to me. I prefer it if they've been worn already! ... Charlie!

  22. Bless her, reminds me of that episode of Coupling where they talk about how pants in new relationships start out tiny and lacy and get bigger and bigger and more and more practical, with the excuse that big pants are now the fashion. :)
